Bathroom debate over transgender bathroom access.

Transitioning of children ‘too risky’ say Obama’s own experts …

On Tuesday, lawyers with the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty filed a lawsuit on behalf of faith based hospital and medical networks, and five states, against a federal regulation

that would force doctors to ignore science and their medical judgment and perform gender transition procedures on children.

Yes, on children.

    This song sums up my feelings on this.

    I recall two fairly recent cases where Child Protective Services intervened
    and threatened removal of children from their homes because: A) In one
    case, an 11-year-old was seen playing basketball in his own backyard
    without an adult present at the home, and B) Two children, 10 and 8 as I
    recall, were seen walking the mile-long route from a local park back to
    their suburban home, again, without an adult present.

    My question is this: if these kids are to be considered to be too immature
    to be left unattended, how the hell are they mature enough to make a
    decision about needing “gender-transition procedures”?

    This administration’s decision strikes me as being less about sensible
    policy and more about: 1) Driving out from the healthcare professions
    those people who hold non-PC opinions on so-called “gender reassignment
    therapy”, and 2) government power-grab at the expense of parent’s
    autonomy in making decisions about rearing their own kids.

    More transbutterfly surgery, less transgender surgery.

  • Why do you need to transition children into anything?

    This is child abuse.

    Anybody out there have experience with cataract surgery?

    • Alain

      I had it. Why you ask?

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        I just found out I got them.

        • Alain

          If my experience was anything to go by, it was a piece of cake. I was very happy, as I cannot stand having anything in my eyes so expected it to be painful, etc. It wasn’t at all and I was fully awake during the surgery. Here they do one eye at a time, so I really had it done twice if you like. Any way it has totally improved over what it used to be years ago when my late mother had it done.

            I just turned fifty.
            Seems kind of early.
            I’m moving north for work and one eye seemed kind of iffy.
            I thought my astigmatism had changed and figured I should get it checked out since it could take months to get new glasses.
            One eye is blurry and the other is great but apparently they are both affected.
            My wife said I called it again.
            Three days ago I said what if I have cataracts?
            Sometimes I hate being right.
            Well, once it’s done it’s done, right?

            Had mine done at the same age. The only problem I had was that the waiting list that Wynne says doesn’t exist was in excess of two years at the time. This was in the GTA. When we moved to Thunder Bay the surgery was done with in three weeks of seeing a doctor. The doctor did a great job and I went from 20/200 vision to 20/25 after the surgery. The only difference was that I now need glasses to read.
            The surgery it’s self was done with the water pick method, lasted about 50 minutes, and the results were spectacular.

            I thought it was going to be like that. I’ve always been paranoid about people touching my eyes, but after the industrial strength sedative I really didn’t care. Easy peasy.

            As long as they drug the hell out of me.
            And play the Ludwig van.

            While undergoing surgery, you can dream about being a Droog. 😉

            Good luck, buddy! Get those eyes fixed ASAP.

          • Alain

            OMG, then I am thankful to be in BC where for this I did not have to wait at all.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            It’s really not that bad then, eh?
            Because it’s starting to sink in.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Are you saying that my vision could actually improve to the point where I wouldn’t need to wear glasses all the time?

          • Clausewitz

            That’s how it worked for me. Only wear glasses for up close reading now. After 40 years of glasses, no more need for them.
